I'd call that a TKO...Reaves IS the next Probert-

Posted by Jellyczar on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

good tight bout

Posted by TG on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves is a tough dude!

Posted by DC⚡️69 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

McQuaid who is tough got his ass handed to him by the tougher Reaves good fight though McQuaid didn’t start to lose until the end

Posted by Jimmy28 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves is clearly the toughest cat in the league. Mcquaid got owned. He actually got f’nowned.

Posted by ctchewy on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Close fight up until the end when Reaves get in a couple good shots. McQuaid loses a rare one.

Posted by surfmaster69 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reeves worked McQuaid here in this heavyweight tilt.

Posted by bruinsfan4life on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Im a bruins fan and a mcquaid fan but reeves won

Posted by Jeffro6666 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Can't believe these guys have never met before, McQuaid is as tough as they come but decided win for Reaves

Posted by WhaleBoy on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

just pummeled McQuaid....don't think I ever seen McQuaid get whooped liked that

Posted by Wheebill on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Typical Ryan Reaves beat down. Miss not having him in Pittsburgh. Would've been nice to see If the Philthadelphia Flyers would've been so dirty February 23. Doubt it.

Posted by Thebiff on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Good fight for Reaves. Hate him, but he clearly won

Posted by jonahbuxton on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

tko?

Posted by jskelly1195 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

This was not close. Adam McQuaid really needs to stop trying to fight. Especially guys like Reaves.

Posted by mo_town on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Great fight from 2 of the better fighters

Posted by slavv on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

TKO by Reaves. Not sure if a lot of those posting here stopped watching before McQuaid got dropped by right after getting dominated throughout the fight. Sounding like typical Bruins fans seeing much differently than it actually played out....

Posted by Kyleg on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Probably the two toughest guys going in the league right here. Reaves took it but if they fight again it could just as easy go Mcquaids way. Good fight overall.

Posted by hollidad on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Two tough SOB's, would love to see a round two where McQuaid didn't have his elbow pad stuck. Not using that as an excuse, gave it to Reaves at an 8. Nice combo of a bomb that had McQuaid leaning then a shot or two, one to the side, few more to the dome and McQuaid was done. Fight of the year

Posted by Vgkvgk on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves is a beast

Posted by Hired Goon on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Good punch-up. Reaves is an important part of this team. Rarely lost a fight in a decade, plays the body like a champ too

Posted by Kamilli on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Well first off, it makes me seriously depressed see mcquiad in a rangers uniform. (GO B’s) Damn!! Talk about a super fight! Reaves is so dominate most his fight. Mcquiad is tough mf’er. I like to them go again in future.

Posted by dthorwesten on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves with the win

Posted by Mounty in NC on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

No doubt who wins this one. McQuaid somewhat lands a punch early although it was mostly blocked by Reaves' shoulder then Reaves unloads on him. One good shot knocks McQuaid to his knees.

Posted by hughtrain on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves is just flat out scary. That pre fight stance, the look, the force of those blows, especially the body blow near the end.....oof. McQuaid is a tough cookie, he tried hanging in there but just couldnt keep up with Reaves

Posted by Hockeyfan76 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

McQuaid is lucky that he had the half visor on to take the first few punches. Otherwise, he would have gotten really smoked. If you’re a fighter you should either have the new Bauer clip in visor and unclip it if the other guy is visorless...or take your lid off to even it up. It’s like two boxers sparring. One with headgear and one without. One has face protection and the other doesn’t. Hats off to Reeves.

Posted by GreatMurray on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Even the Boston Homers can't save Quaider from this demolition. Quaiders punches didn't even make Reaves blink...pretty close to a knock out...TKO Reaves.

Posted by jerry s on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

reaves definitely in control here was hoping for a better bout but Reaves was to strong

Posted by Chancedawg on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Ryan Reeves is a beast!

Posted by Jake on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Nice tilt. Reeves got the upper hand and just kept chucking for the win.

Posted by ilovefights on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Absolutely great tilt from both guys, definitely give the edge here to healthy scratch Ryan Reaves.

Posted by Oldredcanoe on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

McQuaid got in better punches. Reaves kept swinging to the back of Adams head because he knew he couldn’t stand toe to toe after quaider started smashing his face

Posted by BroNorman on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

10 years ago this fight would be voted around a 4-5 but things have changed as we know and it gets a high vote rate. The matchup alone gives this fight a few extra points on the rating. I think everyone knew it would end this way. Mcquaid is a great fighter but Reaves is a mismatch for him. Not too many mismatches for a guy like mcquaid but Reaves may be top dog in the league these days. Glad they both agreed to drop em'. I give it a 6 and unanimous decision Reaves.

Posted by Hockeymaniac on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Oldredcanoe you've lost your mind!!! Reaves with another W!!! McQuaid is garbage!!!

Posted by Humper on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Nobody today is going to beat Reaves. Nobody.

Posted by Orr Fourever on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reeves...

Posted by Avulsion on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Decent tilt with two heavys.

Posted by rodlang on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

McQuaid has not played a lot this year, so he might be rusty. Reaves is the last of a dying bred in the NHL....the heavyweight fighter. Ten years ago, there were several guys that could go with Reaves. Not the case any more as the NHL has eliminated the heavyweights.

Posted by tacomania on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

I give this a draw, but clearly Mcquaid early then he couldn't free his arm as clearly seen. How could anybody but homeys give this to Reaves.

Posted by Angelo on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reeves stated on podcast he thought Adam was toughest guy in league , the toughest guy in league ... would say that ! If you don’t get hurt it’s a win ...

Posted by Rangeley_blkbea on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

so McQuaid is finishing a shift, and Reaves jumps on the ice to fight him? not a very decisive win for having that much edge. Reaves wins but this is a case of "any given sunday" if that arm pad comes off Quaid would have got the jackhammer going.

Posted by ironbar44 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

lone wolf almost made extinct

Posted by Moose16 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Good fight

Posted by [email protected] on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

The fight I've been waiting for! Two of the best today. Healthy scratch Reaves vs Infirmary Mcquaid. Gave it to Mcquaid cause I'm a homer. Sue me

Posted by Imarabhata on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves holds the belt officially. Great fight. Fight could have gone either way though. Still think an Angry Chara who wants to fight handles anyone easily.

Posted by grappler11 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaver with the win, good fight, Reaves is a beast

Posted by Ings04 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves is a big man, good on McQuaid for answering the bell

Posted by nait on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

So Reaves left the bench to fight. I expect a suspension for this. Win Reaves

Posted by Admiral Bean on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

I don't recall another McQuaid loss, most underrated fighter in the league. Reeves got him though.

Posted by Notsince15 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves does his normal of make it look like he’s productive throwing wild early shots. McQuiad connects more meaningful early shots. Reaves comes on late. Still doesn’t change the fact that Reaves is a vile individual needing his bell rung.

Posted by hughcares on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

McQueer standing up early cause he has the shield protecting him. Once Reaves got pissed off fight was over.

Posted by Daysofcoleco on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Quaid bails as soon as his sheild is popped off his face. Should have been a better fight.

Posted by cooldaddy on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves all the way...vote any other way and you don’t like Reaves or are a Rangers fan...good bout though..

Posted by tpr1960 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

This was a real fight, back to the good 'ol days, Adam was holding his own but Ryan got him at the end. Visions of Probert, Grimson, Brown dancing in my head.... Alas, look at the next 2,3 or 100 fights on here,.............

Posted by kranium62 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Dominating TKO win by Reaves - once he got his right going McQuaid was over-matched. I counted four decent connections before that final last flush to the jaw put McQuaid down. If it weren't for the pussy visor McQuaid wears, this would likely have been over sooner.

Posted by jemihami on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves is a tough SOB, but I wonder how he would have done 10-20 years ago. In a couple of years, he'll be too old to defend himself against any new blood and the NHL will probably have eliminated fighting anyhow. Also, I still love the comments by those who have never punched a helmet or visor or who have never been punched or have been in a fight! FYI ... watching hockey fights does not make you a tough guy.

Posted by jo-naz on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Good to see a fight where Reaves has to work for the win. He's the toughest hombre in the NHL, so seeing something a bit more challenging for is refreshing. Good fight and really good job from both the guys.

Posted by bigmike53 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Two of the best in today’s game have a go at it. Reaves dominates and solidifies his position at the top.

Posted by Fists of Fleury on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

I wanted this fight to happen, I called for it to happen, I lost my mind when it happened. McQuaid is one of the few guys left who could possibly beat Reaves more than 1 time out of 10 on any given night. I was slightly nervous for Reaves early on, then he chopped McQuaid down like a tree. Both guys fresh, squared up, center ice, what more do you want from a fight? Would love see Gudbranson, Johnston, or Harpur vs Reaves. He already tuned Wilson up but would love to see it again. For now I'd say that fight cements Reaves as the heavyweight champ in the NHL.

Posted by PenguinsFan on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Holy man what a scrap from Reaves, McQuaid was getting pummeled with fists of fury. Good job Reaves, hell yeah.

Posted by habsfan 50 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

reaves is a beast

Posted by cpost6 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Rangeley, you got to be kidding! McQuaid was not even tired at end of shift. Reeves was just plain too tough for him. Oldredcanoe and tacomania, what fight were you guys watching? Reeves clearly dominated a big bully.

Posted by Jamesfightslikepoop on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Mcquaid had some good ones in there so it’s an arguable draw

Posted by Pacific on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Just one of those Reaves hammers would send me into oblivion.

Posted by spindr1955 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Great Fight, Two Warriors Saying Lets See What You Got.

Posted by Nilan on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

What a great fight!!! This is exactly what we the fans are waiting for, but unfortunately it happens too rare these days.

Posted by Ry on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Never been a big fan of McQuaid but I must say, he didn't shy away. Good for him for going toe to toe with Reaves.

Posted by gsrae on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Great matchup with two of the leagues best. Very even through most of the fight then Reaves landed a few big ones. Win Reaves and an 8.

Posted by chosebine on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reaves gets the win but I feel like the fight is a bit overrated just because of the names of the players involved.

Posted by FHgrad99 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Ryan Reaves once again proves that he's one of the toughest fighters in the league.

Posted by Kickrick on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

McQuaid looked like a puppet

Posted by Hitem hard on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Do not mess with Reaves........

Posted by clocker_rdw on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Don't get many heavyweight bouts like this anymore. Reaves got the best of McQuaid this one. Would never turn down watching these two go at it.

Posted by mjps4 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Most enjoyable video of McQuaid I've seen since he got cross checked in the throat a few years ago.

Posted by bs19 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Two of the top 5 fighters in the NHL do not disappoint.

Posted by CG44 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Nice fight boys, W to Reaves

Posted by ChuckinKnuckles on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

This was a closer fight than most people are voting. AM landed 2 nice shots early and RR got in the later shots. Best scrap I've seen in a while. Draw, 8.

Posted by pattiolantern17 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

I've watched this fight quite a few times. Both throwing bombs. Love watching Reaves scrap.

Posted by TTran36 on July 11, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Reavo fucked him up.
